Why I came to EMU

I wanted a small school with a good teacher education program. I also valued a Christian education and was drawn specifically to EMU for its cross-cultural program.

Favorite things to do in Harrisonburg

I love hiking the great mountains in the area. Local sports are also big enough to keep my interest as I enjoy going to local baseball leagues and high school sporting events. I also am a huge fan of the local restaurants here in Harrisonburg.

Favorite EMU memories

I have great memories living in the dorms with my college friends and hanging out with them. My most memorable experiences took place during my cross-cultural trip to the Middle East in 2012.

What are some of my friends up to

Many of my friends are teaching in the local area schools. Others are going to graduate school, working as nurses, attending medical school, and working with city planning.
